Integration includes complete interface with weapons platform hardware and software. This requirement includes updates to integrated logistics systems data, provisioning, and upgrade to existing technical publications. The resulting FCNS-24 configuration will be two-way interchangeable with the FCNS-16 for the affected production F/A-18E/F, and will not require any modification to the airframe.
